AIBU in thinking I might be a figment of my own imagination?

(Lighthearted --with a paranoid undertone--)

I've been on MN for about a year. I get involved in & start threads. I'm addicted enjoying the site yet I don't ever seem to be included in the group banter that comes from the evolution of a thread, despite trying to involve myself.

I think I can be quite funny this might be where the problem lies, maybe only I am of that opinion and I'm pretty much socially trained. So I'm thinking maybe I am in actual fact made not real grin

shite, I'm a social outcast, aren't I? hmm

No chance Who! grin

I've come to say g'night. Trying to take the LO for an early night in the hope he'll feel better. Wish me luck, I'll need it! hmm

I'm really impressed with myself this evening - out of 7 threads I posted on I've managed to kill 4 blush

<<wonders if I can add this as thread no5?>>

ItsallisnowaFeegle Sun 17-Feb-13 20:16:22

I'm at peace with the whole situation now grin

My LO is poorly so I've not been on as much as I'd like to, so I definitely see how you'd need to be a constant presence to be familiar with even a few other MN's.

It is hard to get noticed unless you have some outrageous or startling event attached to your name; and even then I tend to remember the event and not the poster blush - like with the minniemouse cake and terrible cunt mum, I had to look up who the OP was (StateofConfusion)

I think it's quite hard to get noticed. I "know" a lot of people on here now and tend to notice their names and not others (becasue my brain, although massive, is not like that asteroid that just crashed. Or is, and is in small pieces over Vaginagrad right now). Then once a week or so a great long thread with just a few people on it happens and then I'll usually manage to incorporate one new name. Eg something something Penguins something from the veggie thread wot we just had.

I imagine it's true for most.

Just had a think and realised that I too am a middle aged Irish woman who has dated a rugby star grin, very forgettable that one wink

<kills thread again and more >

Blipbipbeep Sat 16-Feb-13 13:43:49

sorry to steal your thunder on this one Buzzard

Blipbipbeep Sat 16-Feb-13 13:42:54

Yes I suspect that you are right Maryz grin I'm just paranoid. One of my worst nightmares is my mum discovering MN

<kills thread>

Maryz Sat 16-Feb-13 13:33:01

<kills thread>

I remember now, Blip smile. I suspect there are many middle-aged women in Ireland who, once upon a time in the dim and distant past, went out once with a rugby player.

<revives thread>

Buzzardbird Sat 16-Feb-13 11:28:46

I've killed 2 threads already this morning sad

Blipbipbeep Sat 16-Feb-13 08:57:15

Sorry RL got in the way, but I'm back to kill the thread grin

Maryz, I remembered! it was that you said you used to go out with an international Irish rugby player. My mum loves to tell that story and we all role our eyes grin. And you live in Ireland and you have teenagers... You probably went to school with me grin

ItsallisnowaFeegle Sat 16-Feb-13 01:22:34

ItsallisnowaFeegle, in honour of the current Discworld thread.

I know, I know but I adore the DW grin

itsallinmyhead Sat 16-Feb-13 00:38:01

Cheers!

I am thinking you need to be creative director on this Breathe wink fuck it, you'll make it a blockbuster, so I'm happy to go halves!

Maryz, if there are no prizes, I'm not guessing that she's from The Green Isle grin

BreatheandFlyAway Fri 15-Feb-13 23:39:39

ps wine to you too grin

BreatheandFlyAway Fri 15-Feb-13 23:37:34

itsall we can share the royalties <magnanimous> wink

I think the opening scene would be you staring searchingly into a spotted eighteenth century mirror, only for the camera to slowly pan in on the reflection.... of the room behind you but no itsall shock

Maryz Fri 15-Feb-13 23:00:43

No prizes for guessing DFAG's nationality grin

itsallinmyhead Fri 15-Feb-13 22:52:42

DrinkFeckArseGirls (I had to give you your full title, because I love your name) I'm enjoying having a good old virtual chin-wag.

MrsC, I had best go through the thread and say hi to anyone I might have missed too!

I totally understand, now, how easy it is to have a thread pick up pace to the point it's hard to keep up!

I'm feeling a little buzzed having a chat with people other than DS I adore him but there's really only so much conversation a 10 week old can get involved in

itsallinmyhead Fri 15-Feb-13 22:45:23

Aspie, that salesman is welcome at my door any time, as long as he forgets to go to specsavers wink

SayCool, you have no idea what you've just unleashed upon my FB pals grin

Breathe, that's bloody flattering. I'm well chuffed you you thought the title was so good. Now, would I be required to pay you any royalties for the idea? grin

Hmmm, there might be something in this...I've always liked to think there's a book in me. I've been told I resemble a young Elizabeth Taylor, I may see if she's available to play my mother and seeing as I'm very talented a drama queen I can play myself. It has potential!

Here everyone, have a Friday night wine with me. Cheers!

Sorry Itsall - I namechanged from NotGeoffVader. I am an Izzard fan too, neverput. I'm still reading through this thread so I may have overlooked people I should have replied to.
That's bound to kill the thread, surely! smile
